A Thanksgiving Wordle

wordle for blog

Do you know about Wordle?

It’s a cool application that takes a whole bunch of words and makes them into a graphic. So it can be a useful tool for writers if you plug in a manuscript. You can “see” the words that are coming up throughout your novel and thus get a good indication if your story is about…say, your main character. Or the word “felt.”

But I used Wordle today with my Gratitude notebook.

Every night, I write down five different things for which I’m grateful. I don’t journal; it’s just a list. Remembering all that I’m thankful for before I rest my weary head has proven to be a wonderful way to end my day. Instead of counting sheep–or worries– I count my blessings (Oh! Do you know that song? I’ll share it on Fun Friday!).

And as I typed up a couple days from each month of the year, I realized that my blessings are family and friends, writing and books, music and singing, and quite a few modern conveniences.

But most especially, the Beneficent Mr. Hall showed up (and you can probably guess his name, if you’re looking at the Wordle).

I wasn’t surprised, “seeing” my blessings, but I thought it might be a nice way to say how much I appreciate all of you, friends, and what a blessing you are in this writer’s life.

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

  1. Cathy–Your readers are grateful for YOU. You share so much and encourage us and you do it all in an easy, breezy and funny style. Enjoy Thursday. And remember–anything covered in gravy has NO calories. (The gravy makes it slide right through your system.)

  2. I like Wordles. What a great idea to use Wordle to count your blessings. Perhaps I’ll have my kids do that in homeschool today 🙂 BTW, have you read Anna Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts?
